I was slightly excited for a minute, because the rear of one of the machines looked like a radical redesign. But no, it’s just the back, and the front still looks like a Dyson airblower.
These will still have proprietary mobos and power supplies, and slightly off-brand versions of the graphics cards. Should mention that in the article? Not standard parts.

What about those of us who hide not just the dock but also the top menu bar, for maximum visibility of apps? It’s one thing to tout it as basically invisible if you use dark mode top menu. But with no top menu, this will just stick out. No way to hide it.

Yeah, it’s not technically a ‘marketplace’ as yet, but they’ll presumably build it out to include 3rd-party offerings and also used parts, upgrades, and so on. This is them putting money where their mouth is, building a viable upgrade and repair ecosystem. And for this, don’t they deserve a shit-ton of credit?

it won’t ship with controllers and will be less powerful than the Oculus Quest 2
Damn. All this talk of establishing a whole fully-fleshed metaverse platform for creators, but the basics of getting a headset they fumble. I mean, just give us a damn Oculus Quest 2 alternative so you won’t need a FaceBook account. Then you can do your metaverse stuff (if you have to…)

Exactly. A better, faster ARM processor that isn’t a Qualcomm piece of shit. I like the idea of a power-sipping ARM Windows tablet, but the Pro X is massively overpriced for what it is, plus – the kicker – the battery life isn’t even that much better than the Surface Pro Intel versions.

Wonder why this is happening all of a sudden? Guess with iOS 15 out the door, developers can concentrate on getting their apps up to par, but don’t think it’s that simple. Rather than bug reports, actually having meaningful feedback about app design will help apps like Podcasts etc be less rubbish from a UX POV?
